Tricky Business | Böll.Spotlight
Governments and business are ruthlessly asserting their interests in an unprecedented global run on resources. Meanwhile citizens' basic rights are denied and civil society's scope for action massively curtailed. These are no longer isolated incidents in authoritarian countries, we are witnessing a broad and systematic suppression of local participation and protest.
This podcast looks at the mechanisms used to constrain civil society and the possible counter-strategies, drawing on the results of the study, "Tricky Business - Space for Civil Society in Natural Resource Struggles" by the Heinrich Böll Foundation and the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights."
